One of Scotland's most famous sons, William Wallace, defeated an English army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. And until his death, at the behest of Edward I, Wallace served as Guardian of Scotland. The National Wallace Monument has for stood for 140 years on a hill that overlooked the scene of Scotland's victory. The original bridge no longer exists but near its location is a beautiful stone bridge built in the late 15th/ early 16th century. Standing upon it, you can imagine the tumult of the time when "proud Edward's army" was dispatched "homeward tae think again."
Edward's victory in the Battle of Falkirk in 1298 led to Wallace's demise. However, Scotland, this time led by Robert the Bruce scored a noSEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION victory over England in the First War of Scottish Independence in 1314 at Bannockburn. The Battle of Bannockburn Experience brings this history to life in an interactive environment harnessing 3D technology.
Standing proudly atop Castle Hill, Stirling Castle was clearly an imposing proposition for would-be marauders, surrounded, as it is, on three sides by steep, ragged cliffs. The favoured residence of Scottish kings and queens is now a lot more welcoming to friends south of the border - and anyone else for that matter. Immerse yourself in the Renaissance era as you explore the Royal Palace, the Chapel Royal and Palace Vaults. Admire the beautiful hand-woven Stirling tapestries which date back to the 15th century. The castle is also host to the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regimental Museum which charts the regiment's 200 year history from its formation in 1881. The Regiment fought all over the world, something that's reflected in the artefacts on display. Look out for Drummer Kennedy's drum which deflected a bullet during the Boer War, thus saving his life.
